Can anyone recommend a high level brake light for the Dolomite? Better still a combined side light/brake light, a descreet strip at the top of the screen would be perfect.

I feel that just the standard lights are a bit dim by today’s standards.

Any members put anything on their cars?

Thanks,

Chris.

I have been looking for a solution to this, but not found a neat one yet. Any chance of a picture?

Hi Chris, i have one on my Dolly, but as you can see from the pic at the moment it is low level, i intend to move it to the top of the screen at some point.

This is very similar to one on my car.

I've got one of these mounted at the bottom of the rear screen.

It works well, but you will have to re-glue the rubber attachment pads after about 3 years as they seem to lose their "stickyness ".

Thanks all for the info,
I do like the look of the slim strip light, I’ll get one ordered up.
I feel it’s essential to have good bright lighting on the back, better still if they where to make this as a combined side light/stop light. Some extra side light would be great too.
